There is nothing like a familiar welcome to create an atmosphere of warmth, a sense of coming home and of good things prepared with love.
The Lust Bistro & Bakery enfolds you with that feeling of belonging that fills up your senses with satisfaction. Cradled in the folds of the peaceful Vrede en Lust wine estate in Franschhoek, the Lust Bistro & Bakery entices one’s surroundings with the tantalising aromas of freshly baked artisan bread – imaginative creations of Jean Pierre Smith, patron chef and baker extraordinaire whose lunchtime chalkboard presents a constantly intriguing invitation of discovery.
From breakfast to late lunch, there is something for everyone: salads crisp with dew-fresh seasonal garden produce, cakes just out the oven, cheese and charcuterie platters boasting South African specialities, mouthwatering chicken and beef dishes all exquisitely presented. The Lust Bistro & Bakery is definitely an experience you do not want to miss.
We recently had a conference at Vrede & Lust and had breakfast and lunch at the restaurant. The food was fantastic and the service on the ball. It is such a beautiful venue and I will definitely be back for lunch with friends soon. Try their Viognier or the Malbec, great wines
